Rotofugi Designer Toy Store & Gallery, established in July 2004, is located on the border of Chicago's Lincoln Park and Lakeview neighborhoods in a beautiful vintage building. Since opening, Rotofugi has grown to become one of the world's premier sellers of designer toys from artists all over the world. Rotofugi features a diverse selection of vinyl figures, blind box and capsule toys, plush, pop culture collectibles and more from designers across the globe. The adjoining Rotofugi Gallery features monthly art exhibits by a range of both local and nationally known artists.
Beginning in late 2007 Rotofugi partnered with Chicago based product development specialist Squibbles Ink to begin producing artist-designed figures by the talented designers located in their home town.
Rotofugi is owned and operated by Kirby Kerr and managed by the extraordinary DC Cathro. DC is in the store most days and loves to talk about toys and art.
